The VEX Robotics Competition, presented by the Robotics Education and Competition Foundation, is an exciting engineering challenge where students build innovative robots and compete throughout the year at local qualifier events to earn a spot at the state competition, according to a news release by CISD.

The event will happen on Saturday, March 14, starting at 8 a.m. and will feature the best and brightest young robotics engineers.
